Molecular Structure Effects in the Asymmetric Transfer Hydrogenation of Functionalized Dihydroisoquinolines on (S,S)-[RuCl(η 6-p-cymene)TsDPEN]

The asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of five dihydroisoquinolines (DHIQs) was studied by NMR spectroscopy. The DHIQs differed by substitution with methoxy groups, which had a significant effect upon the reaction performance in terms of reaction rate and enantioselectivity. The differences are most probably related to the basicity of DHIQs.
